So rest assured, a person doesn’t need to surround anyone or go around finding someone better & beautiful as everything depends purely on everyone’s own nature and no one has a different associates than who s/he is as character in life i.e. a good individual gets only the good, a positive stays always with the positive and so it goes with the others.
